2013 and beyond

It's pretty simple: the most birds seen or heard from one's yard during 2013 will be the "winner". Want in? O.k....then do it despite that.

2013 promises to be a lot less mean but still a carbon-free birding competition, even if slightly less exciting than a MEGA x EPIC hybrid.

I'll help with another post...

Migration has crashed and burned here as well. All I have to report is an Acadian Flycatcher (87) on 5/26 and tonight I got a new yard bird...2 Common Nighthawks (88/113) FINALLY flew over my abode while I was sitting on my front porch enjoying the evening. YEAH!
Other migrants still hanging around were Ovenbird (5/31), Great Crested Flycatcher (6/1) & Gray Catbird (5/31 & 6/1).
I can't believe I missed (still a slight chance I'll get it yet this spring) Blackpoll Warbler! The only other warbler besides Blackpoll that I missed this spring (that is already on my list) is Canada - which has been only 1/spring the past two years and is a bird not taken for granted here.


  1. Wow, I didn't realize I was the ONLY one to have Acadian Flycatcher! What's up with that all you southern competitors? Especially you Warndog.

  2. Good one CD. I had another CONI myself on the microphone last night, so they appear to still be moving... Other than that it has been TOTALLY DEAD in terms of migrants. I did add GRCA this weekend though.
